"Institution is an embarrassment and should be shut down. Nhia will cancel course required for your major after you already started attending leaving you no choice but to buy more classes. Your new classes will then have professors that won’t show up for class and recycle curriculum from a decade ago making your education simply text book reading."

"Absolutely fantastic. The community we had together was close and their connections were diverse and influential. I was given connections to professional mentors across the country that helped me build my work and network and see how my art was received on a greater scale then my main community provided. They did a great service providing an environment to teach and to learn without feeling judged for not having a full knowledge of everything you were asked."

"It is a wonderfully creative group of faculty and students. It is not a program that will prepare you for the difficulty of professional life as a playwright/screenwriter. You will learn process and that is all. If you are looking for academic growth, you will not find it in this program. You will not gain experience in teaching or even preparation for it. Moreover, you will have difficulty being employed because there are no actual syllabus that are followed or provided to the students. You will get a chance to write, a lot, and you will end the program with 4 drafts. Note I said drafts, not finished publishable producible work, DRAFTS. You will not build any professional connections because that opportunity is not provided. You will not have support post graduation, the career center cannot help you as they have no one who understands the field. The program is new and not growing and has left me 40K in debt with little to truly feel happy about. There are a lot of wonderfully loving faculty in the program, but it isn't enough, they are not educators and there is a lack of focus on education and teaching. Really, this is a two year workshop and if that is what you want from your MFA, go for it. I am sorely disappointed by it."

- Degree: Photography
- Graduation Year: 2015
"Great program, many different areas of photography to explore and discover ranging from cyanotypes to 4x5 film. The school itself, however, is unorganized and constantly moving around its offices. I encountered numerous problems, especially concerning obtaining the classes I need in order to graduate and being informed. For example, I was not informed that my grades were put on hold until I checked my account and the reason for why the grades were on hold were not known until I contacted the school. Even then, the issue was not entirely resolved as there were issues obtaining my scholarship funds due to new staff working in the financial aid office. The faculty is what really turns this school into something extraordinary. I personally worked with and took classes with the chair of photography. He was incredibly helpful, patient, and would bend over backwards to assist his students."
